OPERATION UNBREAKABLE RUDIUS

GROUP BUY CLOSED, please contact me if interested in a frame.




Current commitment at over 200 Ares Armor Rudius Frames!

NEW NEWS posted 12/27/2012 at 12AM PST!

List updated: December 27, 12:12PM --

The ARES frame is undergoing some MINIMAL changes that are in the process of being trickled into manufacturing.
Those in the group buy LOCALLY can pick up your frames during a build party.
The inventory has been returned to ARES and ARES will be providing new frames shortly.

After these changes are incorporated into manufacturing, you will have these shipped to you.

12/27/2012

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12/26/2012

Alan Tanaka of AT Gunworks has reviewed the RUDIUS prototype, and the changes have been incorporated into manufacturing.

Dimitri of Ares will also deliver the prototype to Jojo for review in Corona when it leaves the machinist's shop.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jojo Vidanes, IPSC Grandmaster and owner of JV Dynamics fame, will offer discounted pricing and parts to all those who participate in this group buy, including help on fit, finish and custom work - only through this group buy. His services will be discounted 20%.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Current Group Buy List - Too long to maintain, will be updating this offline

[/COLOR][/B]


Current Price: $176 for purchasing 100 frames and over. Previous group buy price was $125..


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Caspian Arms Slides:
Maintaining list offline

The group buy INCLUDES a set of polymer grips per frame. No, this is not an STI or SVI grip compatible frame. Yes, it does use Series 70 1911 parts.

Administration and Logistics:

We will be shipping frames as soon as new manufacturing completes, unless you're machining locally at Ares when you can pick up your frame at the machine shop.



We will pick the frames and jigs up in person and coordinate pickup in Orange County, Ares Armor, or ship at reasonable cost.

Payment in total and shipping timeframes dependent on Ares' ability to produce and when they'd be ready to deliver.

Understand that there is likely to be a delay between 3-6 months between your payment and their delivery, so instant gratification isn't the name of the game here...



http://www.aresarmor.com/install/eco...AA-1911-F.html

"Rudius 1911 80 Percent Frame

To complete this frame all that need be done are the slide rails, barrel seat and the two rear pin holes. THERE IS NO FFL REQUIRED PER BATFE SPECIFICATIONS. This is not a firearm until you decide to make it one. This is the perfect project for an at-home build. THESE FRAMES ARE AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW FOR PREORDER ONLY! EXPECTED RELEASE OF THE RUDIUS IS SCHEDULED FOR 3-6 MONTHS. By placing a preorder you are guaranteeing that you will have your hands wrapped around one of the first one thousand Rudius frames that are being made. The MSRP for the Rudius is $249.95 but for those watering at the mouth that want to preorder it is only $99.95 to reserve your Rudius and $99.95 at time of delivery. Only free men need apply! 80% for the 3%"

The Jig is intended to use a regular drill press as well as a ROUTER TABLE only.

Linky here:

http://www.aresarmor.com/install/eco...AA-1911-J.html



Those who have already purchased and received a grip will be receiving a new replacement grip at no cost.

1-4 frames and possibly a jig.

Is the polymer grip included or is this an extra cost and if so how much?

Maybe in for one or two depending on funding coming in. Also on end price. Plus a jig if funding comes thru.

How do these compare in quality and variants to the KT ordnance KT1911 Frames?


I would appreciate any input especially opinion based on experience.

KTO is made of two complete halves braised together. This one is similar to the STI's modular design, where you have the serialized metal upper part of the frame and the interchangeable (sort of) grip with magwell.

I've no idea what the quality will be like. Generally, Ares Armor makes good quality stuff (I have a couple of their slings and their compensator). KTO's machining is pretty good (and sharp ).

And as for aluminum grips, they may come down the road, but for now we are going with a polymer grip
my commitment was based on it being an STI-clone and being able to use a standard STI grip. continued presence in any GB would be determined by cost of the grips, and what the delivery time of the grips would be.

Three questions:

#1, will the polymer grip frame be included?

#2, will there be any proprietary parts or will all standard 1911 parts fit?

#3, on their web site, they mention running build parties, what are they doing?

I don't want them going down like Maadi-Griffin and 3-6 month delivery becomes never.

Any way at $102.50 or $125.00, which ever it is, I'll take three if the grip is included and standard 1911 parts will work.
